Any Techie should be able to do this for you, or you can try it yourself IF YOU PROCEED CAREFULLY. The small plastic trim strip just above the left and right click bars must be popped out and the keyboard removed to access the hard drive. I bought a 60 gig Seagate to upgrade the 6 gig that was in it and did it myself in about an hour. You will need to have the restore disc to reinstall all the drivers and the DVD player software. Mine is also upgraded to Win XP Pro. Runs a tad slow as RAM is maxed out at 180 megs but operates fine otherwise and plays movies without skipping. Hope this helps.

I am having a problem with my Toshiba Satellite A135 Laptop. It will not boot up and it says Media test Failure check cable. Does this mean my hard drive went out?


Most likely, yes. First check the cabling and make sure the cables are tight on the hard drive and the motherboard. If they are, then your hard drive is bad.

A friend asked me to download drivers for his Toshiba Satellite M45-S2692 laptop, but the best I can locate is...


Goto this page
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp

Select the portables -> Satellite -> then the model

There you will find all the drivers for the laptop

to burn them to a cd first download them all then you can use the windows build in burner.. to drag and drop all the downloaded files into the cd drive (I assume you have a drive which can burn a cd) Then select burn these files into the cd.

IF you need more assistance with this let me know.

I have an old Toshiba Satellite Pro 400CDT. It wont recognize any hard disks I try to put in it. It keeps telling me there's a disk I/O error when I know that the disks are 100% good.


First, make sure that the cables connecting the hard drive to the motherboard are secure.

If this does not work, replace the cable.

If replacing the cable does not fix the problem you may need to replace the motherboard.
